Hylton's Miller heading to Richmond

By Preston Williams

With No. 10 Hylton having earned a bye in the first round of the Virginia AAA Division 6 Northwest Region playoffs this week, Bulldogs senior quarterback Dominique Miller had more time to think. His conclusion: Stop thinking. Go ahead and commit to the University of Richmond, which had offered him a scholarship last summer.

"I just started thinking, why wait any more?" Miller said. "I did have interest from other schools, but I wasn't really sure if any of them were going to extend an offer to me. I had a great chemistry with the coaches and they really want me there and that played a big part. The academics are just wonderful. I didn't see a reason to wait any more."

The 5-foot-9, 165-pound Miller said Richmond is most interested in him playing defensive back but that the coaches also told him that he might crack the lineup at receiver or at quarterback in certain formations.

Miller has made three trips to the school, for the spring game, a camp last summer and the Spiders' home game against Delaware on Sept. 25.

This fall in his first season as a starting varsity quarterback, Miller has completed 117 of 239 passes for 1,846 yards and 21 touchdowns, with six interceptions. He also has rushed 142 times for 621 yards and eight touchdowns. On defense, he has intercepted five passes, deflected 14, recovered two fumbles and forced one.
